As a new teacher, I can honestly say that PAC is my home away from home. The faculty and staff at this school are some of the most caring and loving people I have ever come in contact with. The children are raised in homes where heritage and family are priorities - which is easy to forget as our lives get busy. These children help remind me that it is the simple things in life that mean the most.

Pointe_aux-Chenes Elementary has the most caring faculy that I have ever had to pleasure to be associated with. Each child is treated as an individual with equality and respect. Each child's education is very important to each and every teacher at the school. I will be very sad when it comes time for my child to move on to the middle school.

I think PAC Elementary School is becoming a detriment to my child's selfesteem. School is supposed to be a place where parents send their children to learn to read and write. There are poor judgements made. We as parents should not have to feel that we are not welcomed at our children's school. I know kids will not always do the right things but you can't expect them to be perfect. This school rely on the amount of Indian students in the school in order to receive grants and other benefits. Which is great but should't pity the community because of their race or living conditions. The problem is that the staff assumes too much without knowing the facts. My child has learned alot, but also learned that not everyone is treated equally.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the integrated Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (iLEAP) to assess students in grades 3, 5, 6, and 7 in math, English language arts, science, and social studies. The iLEAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana.

In preparation for new assessments in 2014-15, Louisiana is including more common core aligned content in LEAP and iLEAP tests in 2012-13 and in 2013-14. The percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Louisiana used the Louisiana Educational Assessment Program for the 21st Century (LEAP 21) to assess students in grades 4 and 8 in math, English language arts, science and social studies. The LEAP 21 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Louisiana. The goal is for all students to score at or above basic on the test.

In preparation for new assessments in 2014-15, Louisiana is including more common core aligned content in LEAP and iLEAP tests in 2012-13 and in 2013-14. The percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
